Event description
The MAPS Showcase Event will mark the 60th anniversary of the sensitivity analysis and present the initial results from the MAPS project.

About this Event

2019 is the 60th anniversary of the sensitivity analysis. We are holding an event with a fantastic line-up of statistics and reproducibility related talks to celebrate the anniversary. We will also showcase the preliminary results from the MAPS project (Mapping the Analytical PathS of a crowdsourced data analysis).

MAPS aims to understand how analytical choices made in data analysis can influence research results. It is coordinated by Robert Arbon, Natalie Thurlby and Katie Drax and supervised by Prof Marcus Munafò. You can find out more about MAPS here: https://osf.io/buqk8/

Nibbles and refreshments will be provided.
